  • Destination ImagiNation™ Informational Meeting is October 25

    Destination ImagiNation™ is the world's largest non-profit, volunteer-driven organization devoted to helping kids gain practical life skills through interesting, entertaining, and mind-boggling challenges. This school-based program begins in fall when each year's new “challenges” are issued. Student teams present their challenge solutions at a regional tournament competing against other teams in the same challenge in the same age bracket hoping to earn their way to the “Global Finals”. All the challenges are designed to follow the educational standards. If you would like more information getting your child involved in this exciting program please attend this informational meeting. Memberships are available for all interested students in the Peabody Public School District and are limited by the number of adults willing to serve as team managers. A head team manager must be at least 18 years of age. Considering the benefits Destination ImagiNation™ offers, it is certainly one of the best values in enrichment education today. For additional information please email Diane Bugler at: or visit the following website: Captain Samuel Brown School, 150 Lynn Street, Room 336 Please park in the back lot; enter in the glass doors by the gym; follow stairs to the 2nd floor. 6:30 pm

Red Ribbon Week


October 24 - 29 2016
Above the Influence

History of Red Ribbon Week
RRW began after the kidnapping and murder of Drug Enforcement Administration Agent Kiki Camarena who had been working undercover in Guadalajara, Mexico for over 4 years. His efforts led to a tip that resulted in a multimillion dollar narcotics manufacturing operation.  In Agent Camarena’s hometown, there was an outpouring of support where citizens wore red ribbons in his honor and memory.  Those people became a voice for prevention in order to reduce the demand for illegal drugs and illegal use of legal drugs in America which became nationally recognized by President Regan.  Today millions of people nationwide celebrate Red Ribbon Week by doing primary prevention in public schools.
